CASP STORIES: Artists of Cowra East make Architectural Interventions

ACE at TPC 3
 In January three of the artists behind the Artists of Cowra East collective and project attended an Architectural Interventions workshop at the CORRIDOR Project.

Skills development was a big theme in CASP funded activities for 2024.
Artists of Cowra East’s Brenda Stace, Ken Hutchinson and Linda Chant relished the chance to work with @juanpablopintomeza @mavismaking from @caveurban and the 21 other participants as part of the ERTHWRX event.
“The workshop was about sharing architectural, engineering and building methodologies using endemic invasive species collected from site with local reed, cumbungi and western white cedar. The placed based activity was made possible by the extraordinary heft and puff through testing and exchange with x24 multidisciplinary artists, architects, engineers, builders, industrial designers, weavers, and art students.” – The CORRIDOR Project.
 
“The opportunity to meet other makers working in creative ways was a refreshing start to the year. All made possible by arts and cultural organisation the CORRIDOR project supported by a CASP grant through Arts OutWest and Inspiring Australia NSW” – Ken Hutchinson.
